Backtracker is a radar-device for cyclist that warns of approaching vehicles from the rear, how far they are and how fast they're going. Additionally, it sports a series of flashing lights to make your presence obvious to the approaching driver.
So you're on your bicycle, enjoying the ride, when suddenly..WHOOSH! A car comes out of nowhere and nearly knocks you over.
Ever happened to you? Well, being hit from behind is the single biggest cause of cycling deaths in the U.S. Even if we have rear-view mirrors, and cycle defensively, we remain vulnerable on the road.
In comes Backtracker! It tackles this issue using radar to give cyclists a 6th sense. It gives you the speed and distance of rear approaching vehicles from up to 150 yards away. On top of increasing your awareness, it also alerts cars to your presence using an intelligent backlight system.
